Artist in Residence




APRIL 23–28

Ben Ross and Jeff Plotner
Charleston, SC

When avid outdoorsman Ben Ross got married, he crafted turkey-feather bow ties for his groomsmen to switch up the traditional black tie. Today, Ross and his groomsman Jeff Plotner create the unique ties in dozens of styles—from pheasant to guinea fowl to peacock to quail.

Gallery Hours
Stop by the Artist Cottage between 10AM–12PM Tuesday–Friday to chat with the artist and learn the process of their craft.
